Maker and Monger's New Store In Prahran Market
Maker and Monger have launched a world class cheese shop in the heart of Prahran Market, exciting cheese lovers across Melbourne. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to the Maker and Monger launch event, where each guest was allocated 1kg of cheese and no one wanted to leave.

For those in the know Anthony Femia is the cheese aficiado and cheese rock star of Melbourne. Everyone at the event was walking around saying they were in "cheese heaven" and Anthony refers to the "chapel of cheese". It's a great story from humble food cart (which we loved) in 2015 to the world class offering we see today, a modern fashionable shop displaying colours of cheese crazy Zurich.
Baked camembert hit the high notes.
Salivate as you eye off the elongated cheese cabinet including Montgomery’s clothbound cheddar from Neal’s Yard Dairy in the UK. Described as a bastion of farmhouse cheddar. The texture, the flavour, the aroma! A bespsoke selection of 35-50 cheeses changing seasonally celebrating the best from Australia and abroad. And they can't wait to mature cheeses in their custom maturation room.
Cheese heaven at Maker and Monger.
Indulge in carefully selected cheeses from around the world, both hard and soft. It's a test of will power. Whether it's the texture and taste of Australian blue vein or the smells of the signature Swiss raclette, the cheese selection at Maker and Monger is sure to lure you. You may not be able to resist. Every year Anthony Femia visits cheesemakers across the world (a great job right?) to carefully select the best cheeses.
At the launch we also indulged in Baked Camembert, French Comté, Blue vein, creamy Gorgonzola, and Parmigiano Reggiano to name a few.
